Preserving Maine’s 2nd oldest lighthouse. Summer tours.

Seguin Island Light Station is the second oldest in Maine, having been commissioned by George Washington in 1795. At 180 feet above sea level, it is the highest light on the Maine coast and is located 2 miles off the mouth of the Kennebec River. The existing tower and keeper’s quarters were built in 1857. The tower contains the only operational first-order Fresnel lens north of Virginia. Fresnel lenses were categorized as first through sixth, with first being the largest. In addition, the Seguin Island lens is the second oldest in the country. Since 1989, the island’s buildings and grounds have been maintained by the non-profit organization, Friends of Seguin Island, which is preserving this unique 64-acre site. For more information or to assist in this worthy cause, please write, call, or visit the administrative office in Bath.
